New Direction offers a variety of fun activities that are included in your child’s tuition. Activities can consist of things such as morning devotion, Stretch N Grow exercises, and singing. Children can also connect with nature through trips to local Richmond parks and gardens. We provide transportation for all off-site activities.

Our students also have fun helping in our vegetable garden to connect with nature. They can participate in planting, caring for, and harvesting the produce. Our gardening program teaches patience and helps build a healthy eating foundation. Our students also enjoy sharing their bounty harvest by bringing what they have grown home to their families.



Our research-based early education curriculum helps children thrive through learning essential social, cognitive, and language skills.

What Parents
Say About Us

I completely trust New Direction for my daughter's development. Since her first day attending New Direction, she has never cried during drop off, she always seems excited to go! There is obviously a very organized daily routine. I trust the staff. I can honestly say as a mom I’ve never had a concern, I believe she’s in good hands with New Direction.

Happy Parent

I am so thankful for this daycare. We moved here almost 3 years ago. When I found them they made my kids feel safe and welcome. I am beyond thankful for this place. Both my kids have loved going here. Kind, supportive, loving environment. Genuinely good people. They really care about the kids ❤
